Sony PS-X75


The Sony PS-X75 is a 2-speed, direct driven turntable with Biotracer electronically controlled tonearm.

The horizontal and vertical movement is monitored by the biotracer's own sensors, and this information is transmitted to the tonearm by linear motors to suppress resonance at low frequencies and to obtain the maximum signal to noise ratio.

As the stylus force is electronically controlled by a knob on the front panel, it can be easily adjusted during record play.

The proper anti-skating force is automatically applied when the stylus force is set.

Record size is set by a photo sensor system; if no record is on the turntable, the tonearm will not descend but will return to the arm rest.

An optical sensor detects a record's lead-in and return points and the linear motor guides the tonearm quietly to the precise position.

The PS-X75 maintains an accurate and drift-free speed by referring to a frequency generated by a very stable crystal oscillator, and with the aid of a speed monitoring system which utilises a magnetic pick-up head and a pulse signal derived from a magnetic coating at the edge of the platter.

An electronic brake system stops the turntable quickly and smoothly.

Use an 110 v 60 hz Turntable in France ??


I want to buy a Sony PS-X75 turntable in US , but can i use i in France with a 100 v to 220 v transformer
( what is the risk with 50 Hz frequency voltage in France on a 60 hz US model )

Thank You
Sincerely Pascal

You will want to step-down

You will want to step-down to 115 or 120, not 100. As is Xtal-locked 50 or 60hz will make no difference.
